Don't forget: March for Life today!

The MCCL March for Life is today, Fri., Jan. 22! Join thousands of Minnesotans on the State Capitol grounds in St. Paul for the annual MCCL March for Life.

Today is the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court rulings that legalized abortion on demand. The results have been devastating: In Minnesota, more than 543,000 unborn babies have been killed since Roe v. Wade. More than 52 million have been killed nationwide.

We need thousands of Minnesotans marching at the Capitol to call for justice for unborn children and their mothers. Pro-life Gov. Tim Pawlenty is expected to speak, and many other pro-life public officials will be in attendance.

The MCCL March for Life begins at noon, followed by a brief program at 12:30 on the Capitol steps. In addition, an ecumenical prayer service will be held at the nearby St. Paul Cathedral at 10:30 a.m.

Make every effort to attend, and to bring family members and friends with you. Thank you for upholding the dignity and sanctity of human life. See you at the Capitol!
